I have played many battle in which I got in Close combat. I want to hear some of you close combat battles.
The other day I had a squad assaulted by an eversor assassin who caused 1 casualty and was immediately killed. His explosion managed not to cause any casualties either.
1 guardsman for 1 eversor? I think that was a pretty good trade.
I usually get beat pretty hard, barely killing anything..however the other day my special weapons squad ( with two people with ccw, laspistol ) killed 4 SM in cc ! I wouldn't expect this kind of results again, but it sure shocked the SM player
I once had an Autocannon team (2 Guardsmen) fight off an attacking squad of Guard Veterans.
The Autocannon team (what was left of a much bigger squad) killed one attacker, and then saved all of the wounds against them. The attacking vet squad lost the combat, retreated and was gunned down as they ran.
I am the Aquila-Guerilla!
my guard do pretty good, i enjoy(well, not really) having like 40 guardsmen maul a squad of space marines and lose like 20 of em and then kill off all the Sm's. but i remember having 2 of my 3 cadian snipers killed and having the last one get into cc with a stray chaos sergeant and beat him, that got my friend MAD AS HELL

Generaly my guard do pretty crappy in combat as I excpect they should. Sometimes they hold their own but for the most part if my opponent has a good amount of troops into my lines and he is not necrons or tau then I am screwed.

I know, SM players get so mad when we beat them in CC. In my last game my Rough Riders charged my friends DA chaplain, and just the sgt killed him. He was so mad he shot everything at them next turn.Originally posted by Cadia515@Nov 8 2004, 13:22

well, guardsmen will surprise you ever once and a while, just like lasguns. they count in number.
but on average, you'll loose horribably more than you win.
rule of thumb, try to outnumber 3:1.
don't even attempt to take on CC sqecialized units and or pumped IC.
but saying that, i just played a game where a HSO w/ powerfist and 3 guardsmen took out a small squad of SM bikes that had gotten into my ranks. that made me feel good. considering that those damn bikes were running amok with a multimelta
I had 10 guardsmen take on a Avatar in assault and win. The dice gods were looking out for my IG that day, the Avatar killed 2 of them and the rest somehow managed to rifle butt it to death.
Tact is for people who give a damn. I'm not one of those people.
my last chancers tooled with power weapons (just for kicks and giggles) charged a blood angels assault squad and wiped out everyone in it. that was fun. I then had 2 squads of guardsmen rapid fire into another assault squad, which left 3 marines standing. Schaeffer charged in and killed them all with his master crafted power weapon. that was fun!!
